He's not wrong ...

The "motive of enlightened selfishness" perhaps refers to what Adam Smith so often espoused:

“How selfish soever man may be supposed, there are evidently some principles in his nature, which interest him in the fortune of others, and render their happiness necessary to him, though he derives nothing from it, except the pleasure of seeing it.”

You are right about that, Warren!

Robert, you do realize that the corporate elites are globalist progressive liberals, right?  And can you possibly explain for me why in the US, liberals are anti-Israel now and pro-Islam?  Being a gay atheist, you would be thrown off a roof in a Muslim country but would have a parade in Israel!  Please do explain your reasoning, I really cannot understand the dichotomy.

Yes, Rappoport should have included the other planks from the Communist Manifesto that the US has already implemented, like a (private) central bank that controls all industry and commerce.

"In other words, socialism is a protection racket and a long con and a heartless system of elite control, posing as the greatest good. It is just another form of top-down tyranny---as old as the hills."  You got that right!!

Climate Change is the new secular world religion  it is on the lips of every liberal politician around the world.  It is has everything you'd ever need  impending Armageddon, wailing prophets in sack cloth ... er ... actors on private airplanes, lecturing priests at the pulpit begging for action, black-robed magistrates to hand down rules and regulations on what labors may be practiced, what farms may grow, what may be sold or consumed, what may be SAID and what is prohibited. 

Why?  Because the world is coming to an end due to our collective 'sins' and we must be saved for our own good  even if it transfers all our power to a ruling elite. And dont't forget the hoards of 'believers' of the IPCC Bible, marching to stop all energy production, no matter the cost. The setup should be clear to even a child: declaring CO2 a pollutant is a scam to tax every breath (and apparently every fart) to pay the salaries of the millions of bureaucrats needed to run the racket.  Note that Al Gore invested heavily in carbon tax credits which become a fiat currency   it's just another money grab for the globalists.  Hey Chicken Little, go screw yourself! ;-)

The Democrat Party is almost exclusively based upon this concept  it is a catch-all for every 'victim' in the bunch.  Such is the irony of socialism  inflating every 'offense' to a crime to be punished becomes a despotism in the name of 'justice.'  If everyone is a victim, then real victims have no standing.  The lawyers' union (ABA) works tirelessly to create more laws for people to violate  they are among the highest paid per hour than any other field and have a virtual monopoly that protects their power racket.  Few if any realize that the Uniform Commercial Code's basis is regulating interstate commerce  it cannot apply to people's labors or property in state. 

The Common Law has no statutes per se  a crime has been committed after adjudication by jury  there must be an intentional violation of rights with malice to be considered criminal.  No victim, no malice, no crime.  

People have forgotten that freedom of speech includes words that might hurt others' feelings  too bad, that is not a crime.  It is not a crime to hate and to express that hate  it is a crime to threaten someone with violence.  Big difference.

Putting on a costume may hurt someone else's feelings, but it is not a crime if there is no malice and no physical injury.  When it becomes a crime to tell the truth because it hurts someone else, you can bet the law is designed to silence them from exposing their corruption.  That is essentially what the Deep State has been trying to do with Trump since he took office  charge him with a crime for investigating the crimes of the Deep State  Tammany Hall was small potatoes compared to the Deep State, but the same racket has been going on since then...

Wow, so well said!  Hits the nail on the head!

Actually the Soviet Union and Nazi Germany were the natural end products of socialism.  Both are authoritarian/totalitarian, the State being supreme, and the individual subservient to the commands of the ruling classes and ultimately an 'elected' dictator.  This is where socialism ends up.  Look at China!  The liberals are pushing for everything that China ultimately does while conveniently ignoring the horrors of Statism. 

Robert, your Utopia has never been fulfilled because it cannot be legislated from on high, it has to come from every person.  The only problem is that there are LOTS of different ways to live life, and while yours may be awesome for you, it may not fit another at all.  That is why Liberty is the ideal, not socialism or any other -ism.  Of course, Liberty requires individual responsibility, honor, self-reliance, courage, and compassion.  If these are not among your ideals, Robert, I do not think your philosophy has good roots.

Wow, this describes the strategy of the progressive left perfectly  and the establishment media is the engine for it.  Hate is their creed!  I have never seen such hypocrisy in my life  is it intentional or delusional?  They are the racists,  the sexists, the appropriators of others' culture, sex, religion.  Yes, one-party rule demanding obedience to the state is a religion that worships its seats of power, to rule all.  It's the oldest racket in the book!

RBE, a while back you posted that you now have a gun permit, perhaps even concealed carry if I remember correctly.  Please tell us your thinking now.  Is it not important that other liberals understand the logic behind being prepared to defend oneself?

We are by nature predatory animals at the top of the pyramid.  To be an honorable and 'civilized' man, I know that I must keep my bloodlust in check.  I endeavor to transcend these base desires and live according to my promises and principles.  I am for Peace and will promote it rather than war.  I am grateful every day for not having to slit someone's throat. ;-)

Carlton, this is old news  socialism is now openly called for by elected Democrats in Congress.  The party is nearly split between establishment Democrats (that live on graft) and socialists (game riggers).  ALL lie, lie, and lie...

"All public servants should be eunuchs." ;-) I am surprised with all the LGBT stuff that the eunuchs haven't joined the fold to demand their rights, too.  I heartily agree  public servants should be eunuchs!

This also applies to the sovereign citizen!  Know that it is war, perpetually.

E Archer, NYC

It's the republican ideal. ;-)

56 years later, speaks for itself, right on.  This is essentially the Democrat/RINO playbook.  Look at schools and universities today, the transgender movement, the media, SJWs and Antifa, labor unions, AMA, ABA, and of course the banking cartels  all authoritarians laying claim to others.  Socialism is a rigged casino, and it is a career to wealth and power.  The leftist elites are living the socialist dream, completely unaware that they are the new slave-holders and religionists to the god of Power.

E Archer, NYC

Love it!  Right on.  Today's liberals are liberal in name only  most do not know how socialism IS fascism with all the same trappings (banning this and that, compelled compliance, submission to the state).  Wake up, already.  Liberals are the new authoritarians, the new ministers of truth, self-appointed morality police, adopting every corruption of the Catholic Church of old.  Might being right, ignorance bliss.  Hypocritical is an understatement  deluded they must surely be.

Judge the person, not the 'church'  in case you haven't noticed there is not ONE church, there are millions. 

'As you sow, so shall you reap' is not a myth.  'Know the truth, and the truth shall set you free' is another fundamental.  I could write volumes on the goodness of Christian teachings and principles. 

Evil is a corruption.  The entire point of the teachings of Jesus was to avoid that corruption and to do good.  How does one pass down to the generations anything learned?  These allegories stand the test of time, language, and culture because the truth is found in the parables of which I am sure you are familiar. How have these shaped you as a child? You are kind and caring, where have you learned your morals?

My hunch is that being homosexual you could not accept the religious tenet that this was sinful.  Personally, I do not think homosexuality is that big a deal, and certainly Jesus never chastised anyone for it.  But you were sure to have faced the religious zealots judgement upon you.  But judge not everyone because of the actions of others  you don't put up with that, and neither should anyone else.  There is no 'church' there are only congregations, all of which are independent of each other.

Christianity as a philosophy and moral code is as good as any, and far less bloodthirsty than others.  Christianity was a reformation, and reform is still needed and will continue.  SJWs want to reform all of us in the image of their religion  no different than the religions of old, authoritarian in nature, judgmental of others, causing violence, being hypocritical  all the 'evils' of the 'church.'

Apparently you can't wear clothing advertising politicians  how many kids have gotten into trouble for wearing MAGA shirts or hats in the last couple years?  Public schools have become leftist indoctrination centers.  Clinton is just saying what he believes the audience needs to hear.  There is always a 'but' after his statements.  If his mouth is moving, he is lying.

It's the mantra of the Left, as well, as they spew hatred from every orifice at  the opposition.  'Hate speech' is being censored and the speaker condemned for merely opposing the in-tolerance of the Left.  The left is being 'loving' in their minds, feeling for the poor children, while calling anyone who opposes 'racist.'  I have never seen such hypocrisy in action.
